The world’s fastest bowler had criticized Azam’s English communication skills during a recent television appearance, which led to a backlash against him.
Raja described Akhtar as a “delusional superstar.” The former PCB’s boss also pointed out Akhtar’s issues with Kamran Akmal.
Ramiz Raja emphasised on becoming human beings first, rather than just focusing on becoming brands. Raja also expressed his dissatisfaction over the tendency of former Pakistani players to make delusional statements that degraded the country’s cricket brand.
According to him, things are totally different in India when former cricketers speak about their current cricket superstars.
“You will never see Sunil Gavaskar criticizing Rahul Dravid. It only happens in Pakistan, where former players don’t let others do their job professionally,” Ramiz said on Bol News.
The former captain also commented on Shoaib Akhtar’s desire to become the chairman of the PCB.
He stated that the former fast bowler would need to obtain a graduate degree to be considered eligible for the position.
